Athletics Kenya (AK) has unveiled the 2012/2013 Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) National Cross Country Championships that will take kick off on November 3rd in Nyahururu town.
Speaking during the presentation of a 10.6 million sponsorship from the Kenya Commercial Bank, AK’s Chairman Isaiah Kiplagat said that athletes will have to go through doping tests and part of the sponsorship money will go into purchasing an anti-doping kit.
“Foreign coaches, agents and journalists seeking to engage our local athletes will have to seek clearance with the federation and the Ministry of Sports,” Kiplagat added.
Kiplagat also emphasized that all athletes must honor at least 3 of the 7 weekend meetings for them to be liable for selection for the 2013 World Cross Country Championship in Poland.
The jackpot winners will walk away with Sh1.2 million while series winners will bag Sh20,000 each.
